Item ordered when available now unavailable the next day



I purchased several Blu-Rays late last night (11/26/19), all of which were on sale as part of Black Friday Price Now sale. One of these purchases was the The Hunger Games Blu-Ray collection (6 discs). This particular set was marked as in-store pickup only and there was one 1 left, so I hurried to puchase it. During the checkout process, all my items were placed on Reserved status for 15 minutes as I completed the checkout process. I received my order confirmation, and I assumed all was as it should be.


The next morning (today, 11/27), I received an email informing me that the The Hunger Games collection was now not available. And to make matters worse, the next closest store to pick up this set was more than 100 miles away. Delivery is not an option for this purchase, for some reason.


How does this happen?? I ordered online well after my local store had closed and I received the mail before the store opened, so it doesn't seem likely that somebody else could have snatched this away from me. So...what happened to the last available copy that was reserved for me and for which I received a purchase confirmation? And why can't I have this product delivered from another store if my store somehow ran out?


I love Best Buy, and I have NEVER had any issues! It's the main reason why I continue to shop here when brick-and-mortar stores are going the way of the highway. Customer service has always come through for me in the past, and I am willing to pay a little more for great service. This is really upsetting, and really a black stain on an otherwise spotless track record.
